Spring is coming and it’s time for traveling with my visual art diary
I love traveling, this is the best time for me to work on my Visual journal.
Next week I’m flying with my Husband to Italy and I would love it if you joined me on my visual explorations of Florence and Sienna.
When I travel I feel so free to just create.
I take a very small bag of supplies and my small sketchbook and I try to create every day something small that will summarize my day.
I use brochures I find, ephemera I collect, and usually, I just allow myself to sketch the energy that I feel in any particular place I visit.
Every day I let myself enough time to sit in a nice coffee place and work on a visual summary of the day before. Sometimes I even do it twice a day when I’m super excited.
This way I let myself absorb all the beauty that I saw and “make” it my own..
I noticed that when I’m reflecting in my visual art diary I enjoy it more and my memories of the vacation are clearer and happier.https://soul-pages.com/blog/
So what do you actually need when you travel?
I take with me:
My travel visual journal
An extra small size watercolor block
Permanent black Liners
Daniel smith small box of favorite watercolors
I pick up brochures and journals images as I go.
